At the April 2008 SCLD Annual Meeting, there was considerable discussion regarding the amount of resources the OLIS uses to support the Aleph system. The concern was that the focus of staff and funding on Aleph prevents the OLIS from taking on new initiatives to enhance SUNY-wide library services. Over the summer and fall 2008 the OLIS has reviewed the Aleph support provided to campuses in Managed Services and campuses not in Managed Services.
The document “SUNYConnect Redefining Aleph Support” outlines a revised Aleph support model. The document was reviewed and supported by the SUNYConnect Advisory Council at their November 13, 2008 meeting. This document, along with more information can be found at: http://tinyurl.com/5bel6m
